1994 e-150 conversion with a battery guard system. not starting, no click at solenoid, just relay click. I replaced the starter relay due to the relay clicking but no starter rotation after. The ignition wire to the starter stays hot all the time (12 volts), but goes to 0 volts when the ignition turned to the start position. Any ideas???? I might have wired the relay incorrectly. I'd like to find a picture or description of the exact relay wire placement.

1991 ford f150 would start fine when cold, but if shut off after driving 30 mins. or so, starter would barely turn over. After sitting for 15 mins. or so, it would start, reluctantly. Yesterday the starter tried to turn over a couple times, even after the key was turned off. Now there is only a click when turning the key. Replaced the starter, but all I get is the click.

Hello, my son 2001 f150 supercrew 4x4 will not start, I think it is the starter selonoid. Does this make and model have starter seloniod separate from the starter. I remember a ford that had the selonoid on top of the starter. All the lights and bells come on so battery must be good. There is a click sound except the engine will not crank. Any help?? FS


If it is not the ignition fuse, that is what I would think it was. There might also be a bad connection to the starter as well. Make sure the wires are correct and everything is grounded. If all that checks out, try the starter selonoid. If you have ... 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

1992 F150, six cyl. man. trans. Replaced starter solenoid, and rebuilt starter. Just dropped it back in, and I only get solenoid click.

I have a 2002 ford ranger that got a lot of water in the gas. I have drained the tank and added heat as well as replaced the filter. When I try to start it the battery gauge goes down to 0 and all I hear is the starter clicking. I have checked the battery, starter, and the altinator and all are good. I have gotten it started a couple of times and it idols fine but if I drive it I only get about a mile before it dies and the battery will not turn over the starter. The volt gauge still goes down

I have 1986 Ford F150 pick up V8 automatic rear wheel drive. The truck died when I got of the highway. I found the the positive cable from the battery to the starter relay loose on the relay side, due to striped copper bolt. I put it back on and the truck started. Next day I bought a starter relay and replace the old one, but the starter did'nt click at all. What should I do next. Thank you in advance, Sam

I have a 1989 Ford f150 XLT Lariat. I drove her up to the store and she was only off for about 2 minute when I tried cranking it. It gave a few clicks, then just one loud one and quit. And ever since then all its done is give me one very loud click and nothing happens. All the lights and gauges light up but it doesnt even act like it wants to start. i replaced the starter relay(solenoid) on the fender thats mounted by the battery and I'm still having the same problem, and suggestions?

Battery dead, or starter problem? My 1992 381i won't start. The battery has at least some juice in it (I can turn the headlights and interior lights on). But the digital clock has re-set to 0:00, suggesting there could be a battery problem. When I try to start, it won't turn over. After turning the key to "start" once or twice, I receive a rapid clicking sound. I tried to jump the car, but that had no effect. Don't know whether this is a starter problem, or a battery problem. Any thoughts?

Ford F150 New Starter spins just with the key in the on position but the engine will not click to start. Once I turn the key like I am going to listen to the radio, it just sits there and spins. The motor will not even attempt to start when I turn to the start position although the starter is spinning.


There are 2 small wires on the solenoid at the starter. It sounds like they are reversed. Reverse those two wires and see if it works. If the old starter did the same thing but worked before that, then the problem is probably the ignition switch. ... 2006 Ford F-150

If my oil pump went out on my 98 f150 would that stop it from turning over? I just changed the starter bc when u got to turn it over it just clicks and the wires on the starter start to smoke.
